What to look out for in mexico city

Formula E is back in Mexico City. That means plenty of sun, a smattering of sombreros and a healthy dose of wheel-to-wheel combat as 22 cars and drivers battle for the win at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
  • Mexico is anyone's for the taking: Three different winners from three different teams in three different races. Welcome to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship - the most unpredictable sporting series on the planet. On top of that, we've so far seen seven different drivers from five different teams take to the podium. With more madness forecast for Mexico City, expect the next race to be just as unpredictable as ever - Mexico is anyone's for the taking.
  • From Santiago showdown to madness in Mexico: Three races into the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and we've already witnessed a showdown in Saudi, the most chaotic race in Marrakesh and a sweltering spectacular in Santiago. Now it's time for the Championship to head to Mexico. Get ready for sun, sombreros, smashes and saves as 22 cars and drivers battle for the win. Mexico City, here we come.
  • Every fans' favourite track: Fans love the Mexico City circuit. Why? For the iconic Foro Sol. Nowhere else in the Formula E calendar can fans watch the chaos unfold in a front row seat of the stadium-like Foro Sol grandstand. This season, things get even spicier as ATTACK MODE is placed dead centre in the Foro Sol, meaning more overtakes, spins and saves. Watch as drivers risk it all to pick up an in-race power boost as they head through the packed grandstands in the heart of the 2.093km circuit.
Witness 22 cars and drivers battle it out through the iconic Foro Sol for the win in Mexico City.

Still catching up? No problem. Here’s what you missed at the last race. 

 

Battle scars, blows and scrapes in Santiago Scorcher
With constant body knocks, scrapes and scratches traded in Santiago's Parque O'Higgins, only 13 cars and drivers survived the testing 2.348km street track, with a total of eight retirements over the course of the day. Added to the on-track chaos was some of the hottest temperatures recorded in Santiago, as both the drivers and their Gen2 cars saw out some of the toughest conditions in Formula E history as track temperatures exceeded 62 degrees Celsius. 

From zero to hero: Rookie Wehrlein clinches the win

Joining Mahindra Racing only a few months back ahead of pre-season testing in Valencia, the German-Mauritian driver clinched a second place finish despite being one of the least experienced all-electric drivers on the grid. With an impressive background in motorsport, covering everything from Formula One to DTM, Wehrlein's claims he's "never had this much fun," since joining Formula E at the start of the season. With some of the least likely candidates appearing on the podium in the past three races, it's safe to say absolutely anything can happen in Formula E.   

Firm favourites still far off best form

With reigning champions Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler fifth in the standings and it's own customer team - Envision Virgin Racing - in first, the underdogs still reign supreme even three races in. With 41 points between them already, Audi will have it's work cut out to make up the short fall in Mexico City. But the German team has fond memories of the Mexican capital after Daniel Abt clinched his first ever Formula E victory here last year. Same again? Join us to find out.

Why Watch Formula E in 2019?

New Cars

While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. The 2018/19 season sees 22 brand new Gen2 cars racing around the world in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose. 

New power modes

The 2018/19 season is set to be more intense than ever before. New ATTACK MODE lets every driver pick up an extra hit of power at their own risk. To fire up ATTACK MODE, drivers will need to arm their car, drive off the racing line, and through the Activation Zone. It’s only here that they’ll be able to collect an extra 25 kW of power. Drivers that secure the extra speed, can use it for a few laps when they want to race harder, giving them the edge to keep ahead of the competition.

The best driver line up

With newcomers HWA Racelab taking the total number of teams to 11, the 2018/19 season of Formula E boasts one of the finest driver line-ups in motorsport. With the likes of Felipe Massa (Venturi Formula E), Pascal Wehrlein (Mahindra Racing), Alexander Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport), Maximillian Guenther (Geox Dragon), Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.dams), Gary Paffett and Stoffel Vandoorne (HWA Racelab) all new to the series, the competition is higher than ever before. With all drivers fighting to earn their seat, it’s tough at the top.

13 races in 12 cities over 5 continents

At Formula E we turn any city into a race track. The Formula E 2018/19 season calendar sees some familiar favourites reappear alongside some new, iconic cities. With a total of 13 races in 12 cities spread across five continents, what started in Saudi Arabia will return to Marrakesh and Santiago before moving to Mexico City, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Sanya in mainland China. For the newly titled voestalpine European Series, we're back on the streets of Rome, Paris, Monaco and Berlin before the series makes its debut in Bern ahead of finishing up with a double-header season finale in New York City, where we'll crown a new champion. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
